Study size of 32 competitive racers...
Not applicable to many of us, I'd say. Also, competitive racers probably aren't doing any cross-training. 1-2 deadlift (or squats, or kettle-bell, or any other full-body load-bearing exercises) would prevent bone loss.
Anyway, when your upper body begins to look like that of a wet cat, you should be worried about bone loss.
